‘Paranormal Activity 5’ Pushed Back To 2014; Johnny Knoxville ‘Jackass’ Spin-Off ‘Bad Grandpa’ Takes Its Place
  |  @   |  

Paramount Pictures is doing a bit of shuffling of their upcoming release slate. Instead of releasing Paranormal Activity 5 on October 25, 2013—which would have made five in the same amount of years—the studio has instead decided to push the next installment in the found footage horror franchise back to January 3, 2014.

To fill the vacated October 25th spot, Paramount has announced that they will release Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa on that date. The title may not sound familiar at first, but anyone who’s watched the Jackass movies will be familiar with the Bad Grandpa sketches in which Johnny Knoxville is completely transformed into a convincingly realistic old man named Irving, who would set out and cause mischief.

The shift likely comes after a significant drop at the box office between Paranormal Activity 3, which made over $207 million on a $5 million budget, and Paranormal Activity 4, which made $140.7 million on a $5 million budget. Still a strong profit, but enough of a drop for the studio to delay the next one a bit and give people’s palates a bit more time to recover.

Adaptation and Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze also got an old person makeover for the movies, being transformed into an old woman. Whether or not he’ll also star in the movie is unknown. Heck, the entire Jackass group went senior citizen for the grand finale of the first movie, so anyone could show up really.

Are you excited about a full Jackass movie following Knoxville’s old man persona? On the other side, are you bummed there won’t be a new Paranormal Activity this year?

  1. I’m expecting saggy ball sacks from Bad Grandpa. That’s pretty much the only thing I expect.
